FACULTY POSITION IN DATA INTENSIVE ASTROPHYSICS
The Department of Physics & Astronomy at The Johns Hopkins University seeks to fill an approved faculty position in the field of data intensive astrophysics. It is expected that the new faculty member would advance data intensive science and its application to astrophysics. The Department has been a leader in data intensive astrophysics and aims to expand its expertise in this rapidly developing field. The Department has specialized in large astronomical surveys, most recently including SDSS III & IV, Pan-STARRS1, Subaru Prime Focus Spectrograph, Euclid, LSST, and WFIRST. The new faculty member may join these efforts and/or identify new opportunities. This new position is part of a major campus-wide investment in data intensive science and engineering. As such, the new faculty member in our Department would also be a part of JHU’s interdisciplinary Institute for Data Intensive Science and Engineering (IDIES) to enhance cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration on “big data” techniques and methodologies as a means to stimulate major advances. We anticipate that the position is to be filled at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and short description of research plans via Interfolio to https://apply.interfolio.com/23601. Applicants who wish to be considered at the level of assistant professor should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf to the same address.
